The venue is beautiful and the grounds just absolutely stunning! The food was incredible and I’ve had so many of our guests complement us on the food!
The bar staff on the night of the wedding were fantastic, upbeat and just went above and beyond for us!
Thank you so much again!
Wedding in the Parkland Suite
George, the wedding coordinator for the new owners, was in regular contact with me by email and answered any queries I had.
I found the price extremely reasonable. We were able to accommodate ~50 guests for the sitdown meal (which was delicious) and ~65 guests in the reception (evening buffet was plentiful and tasty). Parkland Suite has sliding doors facing onto the large, well-kept green out back, so people could also mingle outside which was really lovely in summer. The room also has its own bar, which they ensured was stocked with things that I thought might be in high demand, they checked with me beforehand to ask.
The staff (Lexi in particular) was absolutely ON IT making sure my day ran smoothly and I can't thank her enough. Lexi, George and their staff were working tirelessly behind the scenes to make the day perfect for me.
The venue allowed me to decorate the Parkland Suite how I wanted to and were generally really flexible with the date having to be moved, suppliers I'd booked coming in and out, etc. They helped clear away decorations post-wedding. The suite is neutral colours and plain, so it is perfect for people wanting to implement their own vision and do decorations yourself.
They're dog friendly too! They put me in a large hotel room close to the wedding suite so I could easily get my dog for periods of time to see people, take her out back etc, then pop her back into the room.
Tonnes of parking available and easy to find location.
Couldn't ask for anymore!
The food was out of this world, and usually, you only get 2 choices as a wedding guest, we were able to give people over 4 choices for each course. This ensured everybody was happy!! The buffet was also amazing, barely a scrap was left.
Our families still talk about how amazing it was months and months later :-)
